This book tells the story of a young man’s National Service in the 1950s, and how he came to terms with two years of compulsory soldiering. After basic training with The Green Howards in Yorkshire he took a senior NCO’s course and became a Sergeant Instructor in The Royal Army Educational Corps. The story then moves abroad to Libya and Malta, concluding with his TA service in The Royal Artillery – and an unexpected offer from the SAS.
